Wow ... I am just so STUNNED by this crazy turn of events. It now appears more and more likely that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon did, in fact, get married in a super private, secret ceremony last night. Pink reader Nicole sends in some inside info from the site of the nuptials:
My father is currently staying in Eleuthera in the Bahamas and can confirm that Mariah Carey did infact marry Nick Cannon yesterday. She and all of her guests are staying at the complex where she owns a condo (this is the same complex my father is staying at) and she had a secret ceremony private ceremony on Wednesday. She flew all of her guests in via private jets. My father is there building an airport so he knows the pilot who flew Mariah in and apparently she flew with her wedding cake next to her because she was too afraid to let anyone else fly it there. She chose Eleuthera because the locals generally don't bother them and there are no paparazzi.
Additionally, In Touch Weekly is reporting that Nick gave Mariah a $2.5 million dollar ring ... apparently NOT the same ring he gave to his last fiancée :
In Touch has exclusively learned that Nick Cannon worked with Jacob & Co to design the $2.5 million ring he gave to bride Mariah Carey. The store's rep confirms that Mariah's new 17-carat bauble was crafted from platinum and features a square emerald-cut, fancy light-pink diamond as the center stone. It's surrounded by 58 intense pink diamonds and two half-moon diamonds on each side ... In Touch has exclusively learned that Nick worked with Jacob & Co to design the ring.

As far as I can ascertain, there are no photos from the wedding at all ... unless pics get released by the newlyweds (damn, that is so hard to even type out) I'm not sure we'll be seeing anything for a while. Hmmm ... but there had to be as least one cameraphone in Eleuthera that managed to snap an image. I'm just amazing how Mariah can go from not even being seen with Nick Cannon publicly in years to all of the sudden married to him. Again, I saw WOW!
